Around sunset I took the big hexacopter for a quick flight over the 7th hole at my home golf course today.  The goal was to see if last night’s work on the pitch control of my Arris Zhaoyun gimbal was working.  I set the pitch up to be controllable from horizontal to 90 degrees with the camera lens parallel to the ground, all from the remote.  In the first image the camera is pointing straight down.  On the following three it is around 45 degrees, give or take a few degrees.
